By Amy Poehler
“Shame makes people abandon their families and drink themselves to death”
In Amy Poehler’s highly anticipated first book, Yes Please, she offers up a big juicy stew of personal stories, funny bits on sex and love and friendship and parenthood and real life advice (some useful, some not so much), like when to be funny and when to be serious. Powered by Amy’s charming and hilarious, biting yet wise voice, Yes Please is a book full of words to live by.
“Treat your career like a bad boyfriend”
I think I might be biased. This is a book that I have read multiple times. Maybe its the fact that the Audible version is narrated by Amy Poehler, I don’t know, but none the less I have listened to Amy tell her story multiple times. Every time I love it.
There are so many quotable moments from ‘Yes Please’ but the two I’ve popped into this post are the ones that stick with me every time. Like little reminders that I need to keep close to remember for myself and my own life.
Amy’s book really has a great mix of humour and heart. She is really able to seamlessly mix the two in nearly everything that she does, however it is particularly well done in her writing style.
If you are looking for a light hearted and humorous read. Look no further, this is what you should pick up.
